Eagles coach Doug Pederson, GM Howie Roseman sign extensions until 2022
The Philadelphia Eagles are coming off their first Super Bowl win in franchise history that has generated plenty of buzz around the organization’s bright future ahead.
In light of that, the team has decided to ink both head coach Doug Pederson and general manager Howie Roseman to long-term extensions that run through the 2022 season. According to Herbie Teope of NFL.com, team owner Jeffrey Lurie has voiced that both Pederson and Roseman will play a huge part in their future and provide Philadelphia with the best chance to win.
“We are thrilled to solidify continuity in our organization’s leadership with the extensions of Doug Pederson and Howie Roseman, whose collaborative partnership helped deliver our city its first Super Bowl Championship,” Eagles chairman and CEO Jeffrey Lurie said in a statement. “Doug and Howie are committed to the success of our franchise by ensuring that we remain competitive, both in the short and long term. That unified vision for the future of our team is what gives us the best chance to win moving forward.”
Pederson has quickly made an imprint on the franchise with his coaching style that he led to the franchise quickly finding success with him at the helm in just two seasons. His offensive game plan has helped further the promising development of quarterback Carson Wentz that could see him become one of the top players at his position for the next decade. The pairing of the two could be interlocked for the long haul.
Roseman has also put together a talent-laden roster that helped them feature playmakers on both sides of the ball. He has helped the team acquire more proven players this offseason with the likes of Pro Bowl defensive end Michael Bennett, defensive tackle Haloti Ngata, and wide receiver Mike Wallace.
With these two under long-term extensions, it should provide the Eagles stability for the long haul to continue to experience sustained success.
